Powerball and even the Florida Lotto don't guarantee a millionaire each week, but a raffle game that began this week in Florida does -- for the next six weeks.
The 25th Anniversary Millionaire Raffle launched Friday and tickets for the first raffle continue to be on sale through Sunday. The drawing is at Monday morning and players find out via FloridaLottery.com around 3 p.m.
The same process continues weekly until the Dec. 24 drawing, the sixth in the series, with one $1 million winner weekly and 50 $1,000 winners.
Then comes a $2 million drawing on Dec. 30, with all the tickets sold over the entire period -- including from Dec. 24-30, eligible to win $2 million. Another 560 players will win from $1,000 to $100,000.
The lottery officials say the game offers the best odds of winning $1 million among all Lottery games currently on sale. The $20 tickets will remain on sale through Sunday, December 30, or until all one million tickets sell out – whichever occurs first.
